Collect 481 fines of 30,000 Bt from irresponsible parents: that sums up to over 14 millions Bt. Then distribute the money to poor local farmers who are getting petty 300 Bt monthly subsidies from the government. That would represent an extra monthly subsidy for about 48,000 poor farmers.

Good to know it is not the sons of the local farmers taking part, otherwise the money might go on future modifications 😵

Do it regularly and sign these kids up for attitude adjustment

What attitude would they be adjusted to? social, empathetic human beings or would they be in the same vein as those who would be setting the agenda, greedy, self centred & corrupt? :wink:

The problem is there is NO police street presence on a daily basis so folk do as they like. That goes for everything on the road, not just street racing...

True! I live in nowheresville, one cop on the streets around here and the jails (or coffers) would be filled daily, but then - they don't wont to be upsetting the status quo do they!

I do believe this increase in activity was forecast when the racetrack was built in Buriram and moto GP came to northern Thailand, teenagers are just being teenagers, speed, thrills, and spills.

So if the 'sport' is likely to continue lets see the use of protective gear being heavily promoted as 'cool' rather than 'uncool' because there will be a shift to bigger bikes after the modified Honda waves

There used to be competitions at the race meetings and football matches in Buriram. The first prize was a Fino. The owner of the track and stadium was there on the promotional posters. Sitting on the Fino in a Buriram football shirt and a pair of shorts. Great biking clothes. !!!!

There is, as with many, a road through the centre of our local Thai town, people shopping, schools turning out, the local government has put rumble strips in, these measures appear to be required to try and slow down the mentally retarded people who could care less for others safety as they pass through a built up area - world wide this attempt at control costs millions, and still carries minimal effect, these are licenced drivers!!

 

A few kids playing around on motorcycles.....nothing, nothing, in the grand scheme of the selfish motoring world - soft targets!!

Time to stop the talk and start the action; these 'kids' and their parents will only learn the hard way.

They used to open up the drag racing track every Friday and the kids could race, but only if dressed appropriately. Need to find out why they stopped it as it was very popular.

Confiscate ALL vehicles, cars, trucks and motorbikes, for all motoring infractions, be it racing, speeding, no licence, no helmet etc Keep them for 1, 2 or 3 months depending on the nature of the offence, and fine the law breakers for each offence committed. Where necessary suspend the licence (where there is one) or prevent one being issued for a suitable time.

 

Separate a boy or man from his vehicle, and they will soon learn the rules of the road.

so true, they come speeding along the main road thru the village or the larger baan and can hear them from at least 700 meters coming and going.  in my younger days a stick to their wheels would be seriously comtemplated.
